Are you a customer of Anglian Water? If so, you could be owed compensation

Anglian Water is accused of overcharging its customers. It did this by allegedly underreporting its sewage spills and discharges. As water companies are rewarded for good environmental performance, Anglian Water was allowed to raise its prices. Had the true extent of the company’s pollution been known, customers would have paid lower bills according to lawyers.

Anglian Water was recently convicted of failing to supply key information to the Environment Agency in a criminal investigation. In addition, the latest legal case against the company accuses Anglian Water of lying about the amount of untreated sewage it has discharged over the last few years. This isn’t only damaging to the environment, but it also resulted in excessive water bills four household customers.

Professor Carolyn Roberts, an environment and water specialist, has launched a legal case against Anglian Water. She has appointed legal firm Leigh Day in her fight.

Any household who has paid Anglian Water for sewerage services (either directly or as part of their rent) between 1 April 2020 and 15 December 2023 could be due compensation.
